Eric Tilman

USCG Certified Merchant

Mariner Captain


Captain Eric Tilman started his guiding career in 1987, guiding for various outfitters in Montana and Idaho. We were lucky enough to start our own charter business here in Wyoming in 2021. We can't wait to help you build a lifelong memory. 

Eric is a certified USCG Merchant Mariner credentialed captain. He is also current in First Aid and CPR.

Eric's knowledge of fish behavior and habitat makes a day on the water an enjoyable experience. Of course, there are always many fish tales to share as well. 

Our Boat -

Our Hewescraft Searunner boat is a 21 foot trolling machine powered by a 200 hp Honda outboard motor. It has a Honda 9.9hp kicker and a Minkota 36 volt on the bow. We are equipped with a fish finder and electric downriggers. 

We have a top we can put up when the sun is too warm or if we have some rain. Onboard is a first aid kit and fire extinguisher. 

We can discuss your trip details to make sure we tailor your fishing experience to meet your needs and expectations.  


"Captain Eric is a reel pro. His equipment is top shelf. His boat is a marvel.  His knowledge of the fish, the fish habitat, and the area made our experience a lifelong memory .  It was absolutely the best birthday I've ever had. Absolutely the best value I've ever had for my recreational dollars.  Call him soon. I'm sure he will be very busy with satisfied clients.  We will be back.

Mike and Judy Harkins.


Buffalo Bill Reservoir

Buffalo Bill Reservoir in Cody has spectacular views. It is just an hour away from the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. This reservoir offers some of the hardest fighting rainbows and cutthroats you will ever catch. You will have a chance at a trophy lake trout as well as brown trout and walleye. 


Sunshine Reservoirs

The Sunshine Reservoirs, outside of Meeteetse, are a short drive from Cody. They offer beautiful scenery, wildlife along the water (especially antelope), and the chance to see a variety of waterfowl. These two reservoirs offer high catch rates for cutthroat trout, tiger trout and splake.  

Heading 2

Boysen Reservoir is located between Riverton and Thermopolis.  We offer trips through the Boysen Marina.  We can target rainbow trout, and walleye.
